    • Anaphora- The recurrence of a word or phrase at the beginning of numerous lines, generally in order, is known as anaphora.  Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;  Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white  And give us not to think so far away And make us happy in the happy bees, And make us happy in the darting bird  And off a blossom in mid air stands still. The swarm dilating round the perfect trees. The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill, The which it is reserved for God above
    • Imagery- Imagery is descriptive language or symbolism that evokes a mental image or other sorts of sensory perceptions. Give us pleasure in the orchard white, The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
    • Repetition- The simple repetition of a word within a short space of words is known as repetition. And make us happy in the happy bees. For this is love and nothing else is love
    • Alliteration- The prominent repeating of similar starting consonant sounds in subsequent or closely linked syllables is known as alliteration. All simply in the springing of the year.
